British Prince Andrew’s shamelessness really takes a few hits.
He suggested that a photo of him with his arm around a sexually trafficked teenager had been forged because he had “chubby fingers”. He said the same woman’s description of him sweaty in a nightclub must be a lie because he can’t sweat (he can). He attributed his week-long visit to Jeffrey Epstein in 2010 to his extreme sense of honor. Don’t even mention his love of pizza.
Incredibly, Andrew now appears to be using his father’s death to emerge from under the rock of royal exile to which his long-struggling brother Charles banished him after the disastrous November 2019. Newsnight interview in which these claims, along with many other questionable claims, including the cynical lie that he would cooperate with law enforcement investigations into Epstein’s crimes, were made.
Coming out of church on Sunday morning, just 48 hours after the death of his father, whose greatest disdain was reserved for members of the royal family embarrassing the family, Andrew walked over to the camera and began to give this which appeared to be an improvised interview. to a news camera about how the whole royal family “all felt a great sense of loss”.
Andrew clearly missed his media appearances. Again and again he went. How grateful he was for the tributes paid to his father. As his father was “calm” as a man. He was also careful to suggest that his father’s death had helped him connect him to the proletariat, saying that it “brought him home not only our loss, but in fact the loss that everyone else. felt, for so many people who have died and lost loved ones. during the pandemic. “
It was shocking to see Andrew, not a drop of sweat on him despite putting on a few extra pounds, bad British teeth and all, standing in his black suit, acting like nothing had happened, going freelance for cameras.
Maybe we had all just imagined the year and a half past, especially when Prince Charles, now more than ever the acting head of the royal family, stripped him of all his royal patronages, the ‘had kicked out of his office at Buckingham Palace. and withdrew its obscene grant of $ 300,000 per year to the UK taxpayer.
It was, at first, a rather harmless waffle emanating from Andrew’s mouth. It might not even have made the evening news. But if there’s one thing that’s guaranteed to galvanize the British public, it’s a glimpse of the most mysterious thing: how the Queen actually feels, up close and in private.
Asked about the effect of Philip’s death on His Majesty, Andrew surprisingly decided to attend: “She described him as having left a huge void in his life,” he said, adding that she had described her husband’s death as a “miracle.” “
His words were pasted on news websites and TV stations within moments.
As Andrew was filmed outside the private All Saints Chapel Royal at Windsor Castle, which he had attended along with other members of the Royal Family including his younger brother Prince Edward (who more traditionally spoke to reporters outside the chapel saying his father’s death was a “terrible shock”), it was initially assumed that Andrew had been allowed to speak to the media.
Had Charles changed his mind? It sounded incredible, but was Andrew back inside the charmed circle, was he entitled to free food and free air miles again?
On Monday, however, leaks began to spread, suggesting the hypothesis was far from an accurate characterization.
Dan Wooton, the reporter who broke the news that Harry and Meghan were leaving the UK, reported in the Daily mail as sources told him: “Prince Andrew might hope this sad situation will make a difference, but Prince Charles insists there is no going back as long as the allegations hang over him. He spoke on camera privately as it is a family event. No one can stop him from doing this.
Neither the palace nor a consulting firm retained by Prince Andrew responded to requests from the Daily Beast.
Andrew’s fantasy of a comeback has been reported often over the past couple of years. And he still is, with a source described as “close to Prince Andrew” telling Wooton: “He is still harboring thoughts that he can make a comeback. He really thinks it’s possible.
If Andrew needs one more reminder that he’s no longer welcome in public life or in British salons, and his father’s death doesn’t change anything, he might want to consider this statistic: close to 400 people have already written to the BBC to complain. Andrew featured on the cover of the company.
